IoT In Healthcare Market Analysis

The Internet of Things (IoT) in the Healthcare market was valued at USD 183.4 billion in the previous year. It is expected to record a CAGR of 18.74% during the forecast period, reaching USD 293.1 billion by the next five years. The IoT market is driven by the growing adoption of healthcare information systems, the emergence of big data in healthcare, improved device accuracy and connectivity, and the increasing penetration of connected devices in healthcare.

  • IoT technology has the potential to revolutionize traditional paper-based healthcare treatment by simplifying access to remote patient monitoring and real-time patient data. The emergence of this digital healthcare technology has addressed the impending need for better diagnostics and targeted therapeutic tools. In addition, it provides remote patient monitoring to physicians and works as a fitness and wellness tracker for athletes and a dosing reminder for patients. The successful implementation of IoT in the remote monitoring of asthma and diabetes patients, coupled with the high penetration of fitness and wellness devices, has created a high demand for the IoT healthcare market.
  • Big data analytics is a fast-emerging topic in IoT. The demand for big data analytics integrates the most recent innovation in machine learning, logical methodologies, computational intelligence, and data mining. Many healthcare experts, including payers and providers, are now analyzing big data to obtain detailed knowledge. Even though these efforts are still in their early stages, they are expected to collectively help tackle the industry-related problems regarding inconsistency in healthcare quality and escalating healthcare expenditures. Organizations might leverage big data approaches and solutions to engage patients, personalize care, lower costs and variability, and enhance the quality of service.
  • The market is driven by rising digital adoption in the healthcare industry. The healthcare sector has grown enormously due to technological advancements, digitization of healthcare, and government participation. Trends that have arisen throughout this stage have enabled modern technology to simplify further and enhance the patient experience. Nowadays, almost every element of healthcare uses technology like machine learning, automation, and artificial intelligence (AI). As a way to help doctors make more accurate diagnoses, AI and ML tools are becoming increasingly common.
  • Artificial intelligence is a powerful tool that can increase the efficiency, speed, and effectiveness of the global health system. It has the potential to improve the efficiency of telemedicine. Researchers at UCLA have combined chatbot technology and an AI system to create a virtual interventional radiologist (VIR), which helps the patient self-diagnose or the doctor diagnose the patient.
  • With the help of IoT, patients can convert their personal health information, such as the number of steps taken, vital signs, and calories burned, into non-personally identifiable information on the platform and store it safely, further supporting the data analysis and R&D activities of pharmaceutical companies and medical institutions to accelerate the development of medical devices and discovery of new drugs.
  • Improvements in the quality of people's daily health and life activities, as well as big data analytics to support and promote such research activities, are some of the factors driving the market's growth, as IoT-based healthcare systems play a key role in the development of medical information systems. Tracking, tracing, and monitoring patients are essential to enhance the healthcare system.
  • Market growth is projected to be restrained by difficulties such as the high costs of IoT infrastructure development, privacy and security concerns about data, a general lack of awareness among underdeveloped countries' populations, and a lack of technical expertise.
  • The COVID-19 widespread distribution impacted businesses in many sectors, including healthcare. The pandemic created opportunities for IoT healthcare providers due to the increasing need for remote solutions for patient diagnosis and treatment, vaccine cold chain monitoring, and device unit management. The IoT in the healthcare sector is producing excellent results due to the disruption of fast Internet and network technologies. The lockdown's movement restrictions led to a rise in the usage of internet platforms for medical consultations. Medical experts could treat patients remotely using IoT-powered telemedicine solutions, thus boosting the growth of IoT in the healthcare sector.

IoT In Healthcare Market Trends

Increased Digital Adoption in the Healthcare Sector

  • Growth in digital health adoption improves engagement with the healthcare system. The survey conducted by Accenture Health and Life Sciences Experience in the United States in 2021 reveals that 26 percent of people said healthcare system access had improved than during the pandemic. Digital adoption spiked overnight as providers had to pivot to virtual care quickly.
  • The public and private healthcare industries have adopted digital technology at a considerably higher rate due to the pandemic. A few of the cohort's start-ups have also proved crucial to pandemic management. Blackfrog Technologies has created solutions for temperature-regulated vaccine carriers, allowing them to deploy in specific areas of Rajasthan. ThermaiScan, a Swedish solution, has developed a solution to screen for breast cancer through mobile phones, which showcases the increased demand for digital technologies in the healthcare sector.
  • Several regional governments are taking the initiative and making investments to support digital adoption in the healthcare industry. For instance, in June 2022, the European government announced investing EUR 150 million to enable digital healthcare transformation, ranging from virtual wards to phone vaccine records. The plan includes supporting the introduction of electronic medical records in all NHS trusts and helping more than half a million people manage their long-term health problems from the comfort of their homes using digital tools.
  • Similarly, in India, the government has taken initiatives like National Digital Health Mission, Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, and Make in India to accelerate innovation and digitization in the country's healthcare sector.
  • The medication management segment is also expected to show significant growth due to the growing adoption of healthcare information systems, the rising need to reduce medication errors and improve patient safety, and the increasing adoption of mHealth solutions for medication management. A rising focus of market players on developing innovative solutions in the field of medication management is also boosting the segment's growth.
  • With the development of digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, which have massive potential in the market for healthcare, hospitals and other medical institutions can treat more patients at once while significantly lowering their workload.
  • AI can assist medical professionals in giving more precise diagnoses and treatment plans using patient data and other information. AI can also help make healthcare more proactive and predictive by analyzing extensive data to create better patient preventative care suggestions.
  • Devices supporting the Internet of Things (IoT) have enabled remote medical monitoring, keeping patients safe and healthy and expanding the possibilities for doctors to deliver world-class care. It also improved patient engagement and satisfaction by making interactions with doctors easier and more efficient. In addition, remote patient health monitoring can help reduce hospital stays and prevent readmissions.
